Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this surprisingly wise comedy, while hilarious (though not in a showy, Hangover-esque way), addresses some mature themes, including infidelity, incarceration, and job boundaries. Swearing abounds (including plenty of "f--k"s), and some scenes are quite sexually charged, including one that shows a character at the beginning of a threesome. Most of the nudity is somewhat indirect -- viewable from the side or the back, in brief slices -- but plenty of action is implied, and there's some frank talk as well. A couple of scenes involve marijuana.

Sexual Content

A man gets caught in a near threesome; viewers see another man naked (from the side), with a bare-chested woman astride him (her breasts are visible in profile). In another scene, a man is shown naked, his testicles quickly glimpsed. He's with a woman; she's mostly clothed, but the suggestion is that they're caught having sex. A married woman flashes her husband, but viewers don't see her (he makes a comment about her private parts). Frank discussion about the sexual habits of one of the sisters, who at one point is shown buttoning up after posing nude for an artist.

Violence

Some yelling and screaming. Friends and family insult each other.

Language

Many uses of words including "f--k," "s--t," "d--k," "c--k," "goddamn," "a--hole," "oh my God," and more.

Social Behavior

A big chunk of the movie shows the positive repercussions that happen when people are more honest and kind with each other (though it also shows that there are people who look like they live kindness and compassion but are as aggressive as they come). Another message is that families do well when they stick together and support each other.

Consumerism

Nair labels are prominently seen, as is the Apple computer logo.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A man is shown passing a bag of weed to a cop. Later he admits to smoking some of it with a neighbor. Social drinking (wine, etc) at restaurants, family meals, and parties. One character is particularly fond of her wine.
